Stunning Home in the Highlands!
This beautiful home was ours for 5 days. It is seriously well decorated with every detail thought of. The home is well stocked with everything you need - towels, pillows, kitchen items, etc. The Highlands neighborhood felt very safe and it was close to a lot of sites. We didn't get a chance to explore the surrounding area on foot due to weather, so maybe next time. The owner was super helpful and responsive! I had texted him a question and got a call back within minutes.
If you want to have a big family meal, the massive kitchen and dining room will easily accommodate! Also, we loved the Sonos speakers with Alexa (although Living Room Alexa and Kitchen Alexa sometimes got confused with each other.) We stayed up late just listening to 80's music while sipping on wine.
The master bedroom was HUGE and the bed was extremely comfortable (memory foam I believe) and no complaints from the kids about theirs. I was told the basement bed was a too soft, but I think that's just a personal preference.
A few of minor downsides that I hope are helpful:
- The living room is on the smaller side. Since there were only 4 adults and 4 kids, we were able to spread out nicely, but if it was 8 adults hanging out in the living room, it would definitely be a bit crammed.
- The garage can be difficult to get squeeze two cars in. We didn't even bother with the single garage door. I have a city home with a garage, so it wasn't too bad for me, but my buddy definitely had trouble navigating his way in.
- The temp was set really low when we got there, so I had to figure out the Nest. Unfortunately, the Nest was locked with a PIN, and there wasn't anything in the manual. Since it was past midnight, I didn't want to bother the owner. Fortunately, I managed to figure out the PIN and increase the temp. But had I not, we would have had one cold night in Denver :0
All in all, I'm not sure you will find a nicer, cleaner or better house in this price range. BIG BIG THANKS to the owner, David! If we are back in Denver, this is definitely the place we want to stay!
Thanks for the feedback Philamn! We try really hard to make our home as comfortable as we can for our guests and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed all the extra amenities.
I’m so sorry about the mix-up with the thermostat, I try and set it to a comfortable range before our guests arrive, but unfortunately technology got the best of me this time. I have since remove the PIN code on both NEST thermostats so this shouldn’t be an issue again.
We have upgraded our sound system to include two sets of the new SONOS One speakers. We have noticed that ALEXA does get a bit confused on occasion, but she seems to be improving with each firmware upgrade. I’m still amazed at how we are just now catching up to the Jetsons in terms of home automation😉�
We look forward to having you back the next time your travels bring you back to Denver!
The pictures don’t do this place justice...it is actually much nicer! We were so comfortable watching the Olympics (on two separate big screen TVs) that we ordered in and relaxed while enjoying the snow. This location really can’t be beat, so close to fantastic restaurants and bars, but you are still in the heart of an amazing old neighborhood that has become hip again😏�
We will definitely be returning to this home!
We have since hired a professional photographer to get more updated shots of most all of the rooms at Casa Zuni. The pictures on the site should now be a much better representation of our home.
We also love our location and the close proximity to everything that the best of Denver has to offer.
WOW! A real gem in the Highlands!
Everything was perfect. The kitchen is very well stocked. The house is inviting with a courtyard in back, a grill and lounge area that has a great seating area. The house and location are perfectly suited for spending some time in the City. While eating at the house is easy with this kitchen, going out for dinner is also super easy from Casa Zuni...there are so many great restaurants in the neighborhood that are within walking distance of a mile or less.
We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Denver!
Thanks for the great feedback Lou! We really happy to hear that Vickie and you enjoyed our home. We love our neighborhood and it makes us so happy to have been able to share it with you and yours!
See ya next time😏�
